I love my pumpkin pie smoothie in the morning. For those of you who say smoothies are too time-consuming: I can make this in the time it takes for my water for tea to boil. Faster than the line at Starbucks, for sure.
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 frozen banana
- Protein powder (I use Sustain)
- 1 tsp ground flax seed
- 1 tsp molasses
- Dash of cinnamon
- Water and ice
I’m getting lots of vitamin A (pumpkin), protein, omega 3s (flax), and iron (molasses). Blend it up and it’s a delicious, satisfying breakfast!
